April 8, 2019 - A new case study written with Desktop Metal has been published. Despite its young age, Desktop Metal is making waves in the 3D printing industry. The company was founded in October 2015 by an all-star team of 3D printing experts with a common goal—making metal 3D printing more accessible by tackling the challenges in this area, including cost, quality, speed and safety.... In order to inspect and verify 3D printed parts, Desktop Metal needed a metrology solution as advanced as its technology. And with a broad customer base, Desktop Metal needed to be able to measure parts from multiple disciplines across the manufacturing industry—including aerospace, medical, automotive, and more. In addition, 3D printing is often used to create complex shapes and geometries unattainable with traditional metal manufacturing methods, so Desktop Metal needed to be able to measure these kinds of parts accurately as well.
March 6, 2019 - A new case study with ADAC Automotive has been published. ADAC Automotive first opened its doors in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 1975. Back then, the small company was known as ADAC Plastics. Today, ADAC Automotive is a tier-one automotive supplier that focuses on the production of vehicle entry systems, exterior and interior door handles, exterior trim and exterior mirrors for the global automotive market. In 2014, ADAC decided to explore 3D metrology systems - "[Adopting the ATOS 3D scanners] has been quite the shift... The 3D scanner has evolved from being a tool used to help in certain situations to being used every day.” The numbers prove it. In 2014, ADAC scanned 378 parts. In 2017, that number jumped to over 8,000 parts.
